69,000 people in the UK with Parkinson's have experienced hostility and rudeness from the public, Parkinson's UK reveals on the first day of Parkinson's Awareness Week 2015.
Parkinson's Awareness Week is here. And we're asking people to put themselves in the shoes of people with Parkinson's to find out what life is like with the condition.
We are encouraged by the reports that the Government are planning for a maximum £35,000 cap on how much people pay towards their social care in England.
We've joined with the MS Society and the MND Association to warn that a neurology time bomb will catch the NHS unawares, unless urgent action is taken. This follows the recent National Audit Office report which showed that services for people with neurological conditions such as Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis (MS) and motor neurone disease (MND) were not up to scratch.
